Default Re: I am perturbed at all y'all

This thread is more than 2576 days old.

Bumping because I saw Crazy Rich Asians last night, also directed by Jon M. Chu.

I liked it a lot and I think its most positive qualities (aside from representing the under-represented and introducing me to Awkwafina) was summed up nicely by Chu in his letter to Coldplay requesting use of their song Yellow for the soundtrack:

"It's a lavish, fun, romantic romp but underneath it all, there's an intimate story of a girl becoming a woman. Learning that she's good enough and deserves the world, no matter what she's been taught or how she's been treated, and ultimately that she can be proud of her mixed heritage."

That being said the glorification of obscene wealth made me really uncomfortable, but that's clearly just a personal problem. The rest of the world seems cool with it.
